Failure to reach goals


My life has been pretty much stagnant for the last ten years. I haven't achieved much and I still have the same goals I had ten years ago that I still didn't do.

There's been a little bit of progress, but mostly it's been 1 step forward, 2 steps backwards.

I've tried making schedules, weekly or daily goals, deadlines, To-do lists; I tried different apps or strategies (marking days on the calendar, setting daily ...

I don't know what to do.. Seeking healing and alternative co

I don't know what to do or where to turn. I feel at disparity often due to not having an option. I used to want to create a place called "option hope" for people that was run more like a hostel or organic farm commune for those in times of breakdown or distress. Now I could not imagine such a venture from what only myself has endured. I am tired and on the brink of ...

Realizing You Have Mental Illness

Hello people,

This is my first time posting on a mental health forum. I am reaching out because I really feel like I am in a lonely helpless place. For me, and probably many others, the virus has made my life much more isolated. As I get older my family gets further apart and that it is making my illness worse.

I guess the topic of this post, is how did you feel when you ...

Why did I jump into the cold stream with my clothing on?!

I always had these little quarks that I would always do for the heck of it. I have a certain road that I don't drive on(and close my eyes when someone else drives me on it), a playlist of songs I can't listen to, I even made some art that I won't allow myself to view.

I would make these from odd episodes I'd get. Where I was act impulsive. I would twitch and fall ...

Does miracles happen?


There was a time when I was good in studies and I had good friends but over the years, I lost everything.

1. My family doesn't really care about me. They are all busy in their lives.
2. I have no friends in the area. Everybody is so far away and they are busy in their lives
3. I didn't finish my education. I am 2 courses away from achieving my diploma but I ...

Any Idea What This Is?

Hi, any idea what this is?

While awake and conscious, suddenly Jill acts strangely by suddenly telling Susan about the greater things in life.
Susan is unsure if Jill is being normal or unusual.
After the incident is over, Susan talks to Jill about it, and Jill responses with having no recollection of the incident.

What happened to Jill during the incident? So far the answers I've gotten are thought-block and delusion. I believe it's ...

Always clenching teeth

I don't do it when I sleep, but I'm always doing it when I'm awake. It makes my jaw sore, and it hurts my teeth. I only started doing it a little over a month ago, but now I do it non-stop. Does anyone have any ideas how I can stop doing it?

Music and Mental State

Do you find that your current state of mind dictates what you feel comfortable listening to?

I know that if I am being affected by my depression or am just sad over something in general, I cannot listen to music that is melancholy or too emotive as it will make me cry. In fact most of my life I've avoided this kind of music even though I do like some artists that make 'sad' songs ...
